The most comfy from HD that I've had was the 09 and later "low" seat. Hadf one on my 09 EGC and it was flawless to ride and good for 600+ miles a day. Other than that I like Mustang seats after they break in, never had a Corbin, but I hear that they are pretty comfy after broke in.

I am leery about trying new seats. A little more costly than shields if they don't work. With that being said I always found the 2007 and 2008 stock Road Glide seats to be very comfortable. Pretty much the same seat with a different pan for the newer style mounting. It has a narrow and low profile but is still pretty comfy for long distance. Best part is the passenger area is wider, has more padding and doesn't slope down at the tail. I tracked down a used one for my 2009 EG Classic and I will be trying to find one again rel soon. I think I am gonna eventually break down and try a C&C since they seem to get rave reviews.

If anyone happens to have a stock 08 seat sitting around I might be interested in buying. Would prefer one that is barely used.


Here are a few pics of the 08 stock RG seat.

Here's mine. Sorry the system won't let me upload my pics of seat, says I have already uploaded it in another thread. Look at Corbins website. With Corbin you can choose from alot of different leathers, vinyls, designs etc. at no extra cost except for the new (real) stingray material they are offering.

On my RGC, Corbin Classic Solo, truly amazing.

On my RGU, Road Zeppelin, awesome.


If I HAD to choose between the two, the Corbin would win. Its just that good.
